A journey through Malabar!

The Idea of travelling through Malabar came when my friend sent me pictures of banners.Fans of various soccer playing nations have spent huge amount of money for printing and mounting these banners.

These banners show the real passion of the people in the northern Kerala for football. So in order to get a first hand account of the celebrations, I decided to travel through the main Soccer loving districts of Kerala i.e Palakkad, Malappuram and Kozhikode. The idea was to pick up as many news related to World Cup football,to meet fans, find out the World Cup special merchandising and to understand in detail various local soccer clubs’ activities.

For the next one month (almost) I will be writing about my experiences with, I would say World’s craziest fans of football.

To be continued...
